    I worked at Arby's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of anything positive about working here...

    Well, I guess if you need work experience or a first-time job then it's a good place to start.

    Cons

    Extremely rude supervisors--favouritism played a huge part here. There was absolutely no proper training. It was difficult to request time off because it was always understaffed. The one time I ordered food from here, I didn't receive the employees' discount because I wasn't "on the clock".

    I worked at Arby's part-time

    Pros

    Customers and it is a job. Some fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Having to work with Reginal Manager's in Southwest Missouri who act more like a bully rather than professional. Lots if favoritism within this company. Favorites, rudeness, no good pros at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees nice and you might be able to keep some of the good ones. Also constructive criticism goes a long way rather than making people feel like nothing they do is ever good enough. That is why I no longer work for them.

    I have been working at Arby's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very clean and puts FIFO protocol at top priority. Never keeps bad product.

    Cons

    Management is downright abusive of the employees. A lot of gossip and favoritism. No respect for crew members. Corporate does nothing to fight back against verbal abuse from management, even when reported. Training is horrible-- mostly have to learn from having to do things under pressure rather than being taught.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a fine line between a LEADER and a BOSS. Try being a leader for once and respect and guide those beneath you rather than force them to do everything for you and treat them badly.

    Pros

    The people were always friendly. The service was always good.

    Cons

    The lack of Training and Trained Managers who respect everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure that everyone is trained for at least a week.
    I was trained on fries the first day. Then my GM gave me the guide on how to make the sandwiches. She said I would learn line. I was never taught line. Instead the shift manager had me close kitchen two nights in a row. The first I was barely trained just given a list of when to have the tasks done, shown how to do dishes and given different chemicals to clean with but not shown how to clean the equipment. The second night I was let go for not developing a speed.

    I worked at Arby's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount on Jamocha Shakes and curly fries was the only Pro.

    Cons

    The process of handling food such being expected to pull out the roast beef from the oven with your bare hands was a major con. Most managers there were rude and would huff and roll their eyes if I had questions. I Another major con was limited hours. I did not see the point of being hire only to have a 9 hour work week. Often they would out me down for a 4 hour shift and send me home after 2 hours because they wanted me to work during the busy lunch rush; company rules stated that I could not be scheduled for less than hours per shift. I felt used and abused.The people in charge to train were not helpful nor willing to train and explain properly. There was extreme favoritism as well and no professionalism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees and take the time to properly train new employees.

    I worked at Arby's

    Pros

    The food is free for employees and the scheduling is generally fairly flexible. Generally a lot of leeway with days off because they think employees are disposable.

    Cons

    Poor centralized administration. No respect for employees. No consideration for the difficulty of policy implementation. Fails to ensure that stores have what they need with regards to equipment.
